AIIMS nurses protest after 5 doctors resume duty

New Delhi: A day after the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) administration revoked the suspension of five resident doctors, the nursing union organised a protest march near the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Wednesday.

The nurses have alleged that a 28-year-old colleague died due to the negligence of these doctors. They have requested Union Health Minister JP Nadda to intervene in the matter. “The facts have been manipulated. We demand suspension of the Medical Superintendent, since he has attempted to save the resident doctors,”the nursing union members wrote in their letter to the minister.

Late on Tuesday, the AIIMS administration had revoked the suspension order of five doctors after it failed to find any substantial evidence against them. The doctors then resumed their services.

“The preliminary fact-finding inquiry report has found that there is no substantial evidence of any intentional gross medical negligence. The suspension orders of the junior and the senior resident doctors is immediately revoked,”the AIIMS circular stated.
